PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Governor Kate Brown has approved Washington County to enter Phase 1 on Monday, June 1.

Most businesses, including gyms, barber shops and hair salons will be able to open with restrictions.

Restaurants can resume dine-in service until 10 pm and at limited capacity.

In its application, Washington County said it had met the governor’s seven criteria required for approval: the declining prevalence of COVID-19, sufficient health care capacity, adequate testing levels, a contact tracing system, the establishment of isolation or quarantine facilities, the finalization of statewide sector guidelines, and a sufficient supply of personal protective equipment.

Some stores in Bridgeport Village will start reopening on Monday, according to General Manager Brad Hastings. Bridgeport Village shared the following statement with KOIN 6 News on Thursday:

“Our opening will be a gradual process, like turning a dial, not flipping a light switch, meaning not all stores will open on June 1 and store hours may vary. Each store will need to follow the specific state and county mandates to meet the safety criteria before opening. So, we ask the community to be patient and continue supporting our amazing restaurants and stores. Please check with each individual store to confirm it’s opening and hours. We’ll be updating our website soon to reflect this new information. Please visit our website at www.bridgeport-village.com for details related to the re-opening of our center.” 

Multnomah County is hoping to enter Phase 1 on June 12.
